Growing up, I loved the comics pages of the daily newspaper–and I still do. There were comics in 1907 Norwalk, at least in the Norwalk Daily Reflector. Like the Gray Old Lady (The New York Times), the Norwalk Evening Herald did not stoop to such low-brow entertainment. They ran serialized novels instead.
So what comics was the Norwalk High School Class of 1907 enjoying one hundred and ten years ago today? Here’s a sample. What do you think of 1907 era humor?
“A Bachelor’s Query,” The Norwalk Daily Reflector, February 6, 1907, page 4, column 4
“Nonsense,” The Norwalk Daily Reflector, February 6, 1907, page 4, column 5
